For Managers

  • Do you want to build the professional and technical skills of your department's support team?

  • Are you getting value for money from your current staff? 

  • Are your staff developing and working at their full potential? 

  • Are you seeking additional capacity?

  • Are you interested in developing a pipeline of qualified professionals for the next generation of workers? 

With these questions in mind, have you looked into recruiting an apprentice? Employing one or more apprentices could help you fulfil the needs of your faculty or department." width="650





I would recommend other departments at least consider apprentices and how they might help their departments.


Apprenticeships offer a variety of benefits for your department, including:
  • Effective pathways for strategic workforce planning and recruitment
  • Training to meet the needs of your department
  • The promise of vitality, fresh perspective and new ideas
  • Development of mentoring skills in existing staff
  • Support to the community by creating opportunities for local young people
  • The National Apprenticeship Service also offers information on the benefits of hiring an apprentice here




I think the benefits of hiring a HR apprentice are that the person who joins the department will be able to gain really valuable practical experience in an office environment in a subject that they have opted themselves



    Hiring an apprentice within your University department will give you the opportunity to create opportunities for upward development and retention opportunities for skilled team members.

    Monthly information sessions are available
